I'd wondered where the Toadist term came from.. but assumed it was one of Mr. Roper's Englisher things.
Nah. In fact it wasn't even a Wind in the Willows reference to be honest, (Although it obviously fits Beep Beep!
Jude and I coined the term after being stuck behind interminable queues of inadequate vehicles towing caravans, I think in Scotland?? Caravans are 'Towed' behind a car, ipso facto they became 'Toads'. Most of them bear a more than passing resemblance to amphibious reptiles as well. Extrapolating from there obviously the owner/operator of the Toad must be a Toadist! It's all perfectly logical!
There are also 'Self propelled Toads', Winnebogans and the like that have a motor and steering wheel although actually 'Driving' them rather than just aimlessly passing along a road and ricocheting off other vehicles seems to be anathema to their owners.......
